To wash barn wood, spray it down with a mild bleach solution to discourage mold, then scrub the surface of the wood with a stiff brush and a solution of detergent and warm water. Power washing and sandblasting can also provide an effective method, but it might also damage the wood.
Wear rubber gloves and use a face mask when cleaning barn wood.
